Learn how to evaluate risk using the Quantified Risk Analysis (QRA) method – the numerical combination of severity of consequence with frequency of event.

This course will help you better understand different types of risk and how they are calculated. You will learn how to select scenarios to be modelled, and how to determine appropriate data as inputs. It will explore how risk results are interpreted and how QRA can be applied to practical engineering solutions. Demonstrations of Occupied Building Risk Assessment and As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) will be provided. The course will use a mix of theory, practical exercises and discussion.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you will understand:

  • the definitions of risk
  • how to select cases to be modelled
  • how to build a QRA model
  • how to calculate risk and interpret the results.

Who will benefit

  • Managers, supervisors, engineers, safety personnel and others involved in commissioning and reviewing of QRA studies
  • Graduates, chemical and other engineers may find it beneficial in the preparation of the Chartered Member application

What delegates say

"The course was well structured and gave the theory as well as practical examples that demonstrated the theory very well. Helen was an excellent tutor and her comprehensive understanding of the subject was clearly delivered." 
L Reddy, CONSUB Switzerland

"Great course material, great exercises. Helen was superb, she knows her stuff and is a great communicator. The pre-course work helped me keep up during the [live] sessions."
A Cotter, Gas Networks Ireland
